Storyline's Buggy Undo Button

Is anybody as frustrated as I am by the close to useless undo button in Storyline? At some random point, deep into a project, the undo button stops functioning .. or, rather it undoes stuff that is not even close to what I have been working on, wiping out a lot of valuable work. 

Please in advance, do not advise to save my work more often. I save my work regularly. I resent losing any work, even recent work, because of a bug in software that should not be there in the first place.

That was really quick, thank you!

 I am just starting my first SL2 project and came across the threads about undo.  If they refer to SL1 great, I am using SL2.  Are there any problems with undo in SL2?  Also can I set the levels/amount of undos in options as I can with Photoshop?

 Thanks again!

Hi Shane

I have checked another thread (see below) and it doesn't appear there are issues with it in SL2 - as I said I haven't experienced any but I don't think there is an option to set levels.

This is still not fixed. I have lost so much work do you random lock up / crash of Storyline when pressing the undo button of death. The last one was trying to undo a a graphic paste. Noting fancy like editing a audio file.. Just a Paste. I am also dealing with e font spacing issue and it seems articulate just doesn't listen to its customers. This issue as well as the font issue has been around for a long time.

Hi Sean,

Are you using Storyline 1 or Storyline 2? As mentioned above I haven't seen the same issues present in Storyline 2 - and within Storyline 1 it does not seem that our team has identified any reproducible steps from the examples that were shared with us as a part of a case or forum discussion.
